About This Image
Photographer's blind stamp on recto mount. This detailed, fascinating view of construction of a tunnel in the middle of an urban setting has us, along with the men on the boardwalk to the right, peering down into the cavernous hole where an antihill of men work. They pause briefly in their labor for the photographer's camera. Provenance: collection of Jaquemin, President of Chemins de Fer de l'Est.
